I liked my Star RocX3 when I was throwing Rocs. It had just enough added stability to basically fly a Roc3 line but in a 5-10 mph headwind. In calm winds or tailwinds it's kind of clunky and glideless though.

I like my Verdict better than a RocX3, but that wasn't the reason I switched. The main reason is that the Emac Truth is longer AND more wind resistant than a regular Roc3, so it was the better choice as my workhorse mid. The fact that the Verdict also works better for me is icing on the cake. But the RocX3 was a really nice mold, and I could throw one in the bag in lieu of my Verdict and not notice a difference unless the winds get above 15 mph

DX RocX3s are out there. I want a beefier DX Roc3 (still in glidey DX but will flex out), will the DX RocX3 be to my liking?

I've thrown RocX3s, and DX Roc3s, but never DX RocX3s. So take this with a grain of salt. But I wouldn't expect any DX disc to flex out of an anny after more than a few tree hits.

Have a couple DX color glow Roc X3's, finally put one in the bag to go with my flat top DX glow Rocs. Noticeably more fade than the Rocs which was one reason to adding it in the mix. Still too soon to say love/hate it. Also messing around with using it for some rollers as well.

First, my own experience with my sample-of-one Star RocX3 was that the RocX3 is not significantly beefier than the Star and Champ Roc3s I have... to the point I wondered what the purpose of the RocX3's existence was in the first place. I was very unimpressed with the RocX3.

Second, as someone above said, after some use a DX disc is going to begin seasoning in and losing its beefiness.

Ergo, IMHO you will be disappointed in a DX RocX3 if you are looking for a 'beefier' Roc3, especially after any amount of use.

Yes, I would get some. I recently purchased a Halloween stamp and shortly after purchased 4 DX Roc3X. They are my new favorite disc.

They throw like an overweight beefy KC Roc. What I really like is how they penetrate. If you want the definition of "forward fade" this would be it. These are not drones, they are Rocs, so don't think you can hork a 30 degree anny and have it flex back reliably. But if you throw it flat it WILL fade very reliably. My now well worn Halloween stamp shows zero flip and moderate fade. It will not fight out of a 30 degree anny even with height.

The thing that I notice most is the distance. I consistently go 30' past where I think I will land. This may be good or bad depending on how you use mids. These DX Roc3X are not distance controlling discs like a drone or firebird.

This is the perfect explanation of how they fly

They are OS rocs but they are not super beefy OS mids and they are still DX discs.
